Brand: Cargo
Range: Essential Lip Colour
Shades: Dubai, Napa, Paris
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Cargo cosmetics has finally reached Australia at Kit Cosmetics, and I’m pleased to report that their first ever lipstick collection is worth checking out.
  • It’s highly saturated with colour, with a high grip formula with lip moisturising plumping benefits.  So much so that I decided I would swatch them without any lip brush to show you how snug and pigmented it looks on lips.
  • Available in 12 shades with key ingredients such as olive oil, jojoba and shea butter and Maxi Lip (lip plumping ingredient).
  • Verdict: My favourite of the 3 shades definitely has to be Dubai for its amazing nude coverage without looking washed out or streaky.  The snug high grip formula gets two thumbs up from me, as it means the colour is feather-proof and makes my lips look more dimensional whilst keeping them moist. Highly recommend it!!

Brand: Revlon
Range: Super Lustrous Lipgloss
Shades: Berry Allure, Sugar Violet, Fuchsia Finery, Pink Pop, Pango Peach, Snow Pink, Super Natural, Rosy Future, Kiss Me Coral, Fatal Apple, Raising Rouge
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • The Super Lustrous Lipglosses are Revlon’s newest addition to their lip gloss range, and come in a silky formula that boosts hydration and subtly plumps lips.
  • Available in 12 shades in Australia, all of which are featured in this post.
  • I’m really impressed by the pigmentation of these lipgloss, in that even the sheerest formula gives a beautiful soft veil of colour that looks great even on its own.
  • Non-tacky and feels really smooth and moisturising with a high shine.
  • Verdict: These are really great quality for their price point, and can be worn on their own as a sheer MLBB gloss.  With wedding season at its peak at this time of year in Australia, these glosses are an affordable choice for the bridal party that’s easy to squeeze in an evening bag and touch up throughout the day.

Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • The Super Lustruous Shine Lipsticks are the newest additions to the Revlon lipstick range, and come in a lightweight sheer formula with a silky finish that leaves lips with a moisturised sheen.
  • Available in 11 shades in Australia, all of which are featured in this post.
  • Most shades are quite natural looking with a MLBB shade for most skin tones.  For a more vibrant pop of colour, there’s Fuchsia Shock, Berry Couture, Plum Velour and Rich Girl Red that leans toward coral more than red.
  • Verdict: This lipstick range will appeal to those who love a natural lip with a sheer but noticeable wash of colour.  The moisturising silky texture revives lips leaving it with a healthy sheen, and I especially love how easy it is to apply without needing to be overly precise.

Brand: Natio
Range: Smoothie Lip Colour Crayons
Shade: Peony, Plum, Lollipop, Petal, Poppy
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Natio’s new Smoothie Lip Colour Crayons deliver a quick slick of sheer popsicle tinted colours, in a smooth moisturising formula that contains jojoba seed oil and shea butter.
  • Available in range of 8 shades: Peony (cool pink), Tea Rose (warm pink), Hazel (warm nude), Holly (scarlet), Plum (warm plum), Lollipop (candy pink), Petal (rose pink), Poppy (Warm red).
  • Lips are left feeling moisturised with a sheen, and the punchier colours (eg. Lollipop) do leaves lips with a stain afterwards.
  • In terms of packaging, the lids don’t stay on as securely as I’d like them to be, however I do like they are wind-up crayons so it doesn’t require any sharpening.
  • Verdict: Lollipop is my favourite as it’s more of a sheer pink fuchsia and brightens up my complexion.  Peony surprisingly turned out to be a pale pink despite the packaging looking like a MLBB shade.  Plum is a sheer take on the berry/wine lip trend, and Petal & Poppy will appeal to those that like a natural lip.  Natio is known for their range of wearable shades, and their Smoothie Lip Colour Crayon are a great choice if you like a sheer wearable colour that only takes seconds to slick on.

Brand: Covergirl
Range: Lipslicks Smoochies Lip Balm
Shade: 235 Tru Luv
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Covergirl Lipslicks Smoochies Lip Balm is a tinted lip balm that glides on really smoothly leaving lips with a sheen with a “barely there” tint.
  • Available in 12 shades (see screenshot below), 235 Tru Luv is a sheer nude and has a noticeably waxy taste.
  • It’s both moisturising and waxy, but doesn’t smooth any lip lines making it more suitable for those who don’t have concerns with lip lines.
  • Verdict: I can see this being a hit among under 18 year olds, but the high wax content doesn’t agree with my 30-something lips, making them look worse (due to the wax accentuating lip lines) once all the moisture has absorbed.  The “barely there” sheer does “nude” out my flushed lip tone really well without being streaky.
